Gwen Marston's newest release Liberated Quiltmaking 2

My very own private copy of Gwen's newest release. Liberated Quiltmaking 2!!! WHOOOHOOOO!!!!!!!
I had pre-ordered this book way back in November. When it came it was such a pleasant surprise to myself! I also got Log Cabin Quilts.
Another WHOOHOOO!!
Now I need to get digging through my stash to match some fabrics to her vibrant colorsense!

I am soon to be a greatgrandma again. This May a little greatgrandbaby named Logan William will be wrapped in my crocheted creation. I have used up 1200 yards of yarn and need to buy another giant skein. I also have three giant skeins of a babyblue. I will make another afghan that is more light and airy. This one is a shell pattern and is quite dense.
Booties to follow of course!!!!
Unfortunately, no one signed up for my first teaching class.
I had enough pieces to make 16 more blocks. I had planned to use them for demonstration in various steps of completion. My DD #2 loves this color combination.
So, this quilt will be her birthday quilt.
And check out how great a leftover block from Carolina Christmas blends with the blocks from the Loose Change book!!!! It seems that if I use sashing I can merge these two patterns. I still need to finish making the smaller blocks. I am almost done but had to stop to feed dear hubby who is home today celebrating Martin Luther King's Day.
Now I feel like doing some hand work. I may need to move two kitties....hummmmmmm.

Wow, Sue, you've been busy! The new black and white is a beauty. Congrats on the new great-grandson to be!

wheee, fun. you don't need to make vibrant quilts to do liberated. It'd be great in that black and white too! great blocks you've made there.

I love books, my copy of Gwens new book is in transit and since no mail is delivered today, I guess I'll have to wait until tomorrow (hopefully) for my copy to arrive.

I still love those b&w Jamie's Blocks. Please don't show them again. I'm trying to finish up my UFOs and those blocks are calling to me. :-)

What a pity about your class!!! I really like the blocks and with the "left over" they will make a wonderful quilt.

Congrats on the great-grandson. We have one and it feels pretty good. I love your blocks, the people around you missed a great class.
